Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
The key to keeping strawberries fresh and free from mold is to store them in a cool place without much moist. You can do this by placing washed berries in an air-tight container lined with paper towels and pop in the fridge. This will allow the strawberries to stay fresh for up to a week.
